    O.K., now that we have the people, the swap moves forward, with Roadhog gracefully stepping in as the Swapmeister.

    Actually, if you'll take a real young kid, my 5 year old likes to tie. He's actually come really close himself to tieing some worthy patterns, and he's actually really good at picking out things to add to a fly to make it worthy.

    Nice, finally some responses. I am relieved that RoadHog is hosting though, my life is a living hell right now. I'll put in two patterns, and I was thinking one Streamer and one Nymph. When I originally posted this, I meant it to be a trout fly swap. Is it still?

    Oh ya, I already PM'd Zen, he said that he is way too busy dealing with the National Fly Fishing Team that he is on, I can only imagine how hectic that is...

    So is it 16 flies, either 16 of one or 8 of two? If its one pattern ill use my resources and tie my dog hair special. If its two ill tie the dog hair special and a GRHE(look in the "Best Fly Swap" gallery if you wanna see it.

    SWAP CLOSED!!!!
    With eight people so far you would tye 8 of each pattern. Lookes like eight is going to be it. waiting to hear back from theshadking and his son but thats not to much of an issue him being a swap veteren. if you dont know already send self addressed envelop and postage or money for postage. and a container big enough for 16 flies.

    yeah, i haven't had much time on the tying bench lately, look like just the streamer for me. It's one I made up, but in two days on the lake I got 5 trout and 2 bass on it.
